    Ok so a few years back I bought a Bugera Veyron 1001m and I must say this amp has met and blew away all my expectations I was just wondering if I'm the only one on the planet who is still in love with this little amp?I know hear on TB this amp is kinda looked down on,why because it's not a big name,but never the less I have played countless gigs and never a problem never an issue,so any one else still have love for this great little amp?

    Yeah Behringer gets a bad rap here, mainly because of their unrealistic power ratings. But if it does the job, it does the job. Play the heck out of it!

    Behringer is sub par, but I believe Bugera is not the same as Behringer, it's comparing a VW and a V8,I know the parent Company is the same but this amp is not in the same ball park as the Behringer not in my opinion,and I have been playing and giging for about 40 years bow(dam I'm getting old)

    VW is fine. So is Behringer.

  5. I had a 300w Behringer head about 20 years ago. Sounded great, but I got sucked into the hype and sold it to buy an Eden 400w head. Instant regret. The Behringer sounded way better. The guy I sold it to has still got it, and it still works fine apart from the input level meter.

    There are a lot of bassists local to me gigging the heck out of theirs. Mine was fine until I checked out a head that I liked even more. But the Veyrons are no slouches, especially when it comes to power. Sometimes the hating isn't really about the product, it's about the hater.

    How do you compare a brand of automobile to an engine class?

    Hype can do that. There are folks here who still recommend old industry standard stuff because they have no experience with newer gear. Things change, often for the better.

    Yeah, Bugera makes great stuff. I picked one of their all-tube guitar combos used on Craigslist a few years ago... love that little thing!

  13. I’m confused. VW makes a V8.

    I bought a VW once. Then I slapped my forehead and said, "I could have had a V8!"

    Ya, the TC RH 450/750 got a bad rap on their power rating.
    I've been gigging one for 2 years,love it & plenty loud IMHO.
    I've yet to see any Bugera's in my area.

    I had a T and an M, but sold them both. I haven't had a ton of Behringer equipment, but what I've had usually let me down. Those heads are probably still rocking, but I'm just not taking a chance. I'm tempted to get one of the Behringer X18 mixers. I've heard mostly good things about those, so maybe my bias is based on a lower quality time in Behringer's history.
